Dillon, Sadler take CMT Awards by storm

Austin Dillon, Elliott Sadler

Pair of Nationwide drivers take part in the Nashville event's festivities

There's no debating that NASCAR Nationwide Series standouts Austin Dillon and Elliott Sadler fit right in at Wednesday night's 2013 CMT Music Awards.

Sadler, good friends with Male Video of the Year winner Blake Shelton, once appeared in a cameo role in Shelton's 2002 music video for the song, "Ol' Red".

And Austin Dillon?

With his cowboy hats and over-sized belt buckles (more to come on those later), the 2011 Camping World Truck Series champ might as well be in Shelton's next feature.

The pair travelled to Nashville together to take part in the festivities, read below to see a timeline of their night via Twitter.
